New Work is a megatrend. Technological progress – accelerated by the Covid-19 crisis – is palpably changing business, the nature of work and the skills required for it. New forms of work are becoming established – from agile methods such as design thinking, working from home and co-working spaces, to the demands of many employees for a work-life blend. New Work is a term on everyone’s lips.
Technology is playing a fundamental role in this development. But technology is only as good as the managers, who must be able to recognise the opportunities offered by technology, and only as good as the people who work with technology every day.
Digitalisation is rapidly changing our work and our job profiles. Many roles are disappearing in the world of Work 4.0, while new ones are emerging. The discrepancy between the skills available and those required for jobs in the digital New Work world is one of the most fundamental challenges of our time.
“When it comes to New Work, the focus is on further development of employees. Digital upskilling is not only critical for business success and growth, but also for society as a whole.”
We’ve developed a holistic, data-driven, tool-based approach, and we’re on hand to support you in making your employees fit for the world of work of the future. We have started our own upskilling initiative for this future way of working, and we’ve successfully rolled it out globally with innovative new ideas. Now we want to share our findings on New Work with you, so that we can work together to write your success story.
We enable organisations, teams, managers and individuals to establish new forms of work in the context of digital transformation and to get to grips with the complexity of talent and leadership. Our team of passionate HR and psychometrics experts will take a holistic view of the drivers of human behaviour in your company.
We recognise that tremendous changes are afoot in society and that the skills we have today are not necessarily the skills we will need in the future. But despite the disruptive changes that are taking place both for us and for our clients, we are still expected to offer added value.
With this in mind, we had to find a way to develop as a digital company with up-to-date services, products and tools. Our employees have realised that new skills are necessary in order to remain a relevant force for our clients. In this way, our transformation into a digital company also became an opportunity for our employees to embark on individual, lifelong learning journeys and usher in the New Work approach to our company as well.
In this one-minute excerpt from our short documentary Bridging the Digital Divide, researchers, NGOs and representatives from politics and business explain why continuing education is one of the central challenges of our time in the digital world.
